Join The African American Domestic Peace Project (AADPP) in West Palm Beach Florida as theyaddress the impact of domestic violence in the our community. This week’s show will address not only the issue of Domestic Violence in the African American Community but will offer an in depth discussion of how the impact reaches far beyond the initial victim and perpetrator. This interactive Discussion will explore how DV in our communities impacts the pillars of our community (1) The Nuclear Family, (2) Economic System (3) Education System (4) Criminal & Correctional Systems (4) Healthcare and (5) The Workforce. This show will engage the audience in a dialogue that will better show why “Domestic Violence is the Single Greatest Vehicle that Fuels Our Criminal Justice System” and Why “the ruin of a nation begins in the homes of its people”.Our objective is to examine the impact and discuss ways that we can both individually and systematically address this vital issue.
October has been Domestic Violence Awareness Month for a couple of decades now and still some folks don’t get it. You might see a purple ribbon. Maybe some businesses and communities string some purple lights in their windows, but what are we doing this year to increase awareness and honor the lives torn apart by this particularly insidious form of violence against women?
There is a National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and we’re lucky to have its new Executive Director, Ruth Glenn join us to talk about what different groups around the country are doing to raise awareness about DV. She worked for the Colorado Department of Human Services for 28 years and served as the Director of the Domestic Violence Program (DVP) for the last nine of those years. Ruth has worked and volunteered in the domestic violence field for over 19 years and holds a Masters’ in Public Administration (MPA) from the University of Colorado Denver, Program on Domestic Violence, as well as a degree in Communications.
She has served on many domestic violence program and funding boards, provided hundreds of presentations on domestic violence victimization and survival, testified before the Colorado State legislature, appeared on local and national television, and provided consultation, training and technical assistance on a local and national level on victim/survivor issues as they relate to domestic violence.

Providers of outreach, prevention, safe havens and counseling services for runaway and homeless youth are keenly aware that many of the young people who seek their services have witnessed domestic violence and/or have been victims of relationship violence, and/or child maltreatment or neglect in their homes. In many communities, there is a lack of interaction between RHY and DV/SA programs that creates a gap in information and services between the two. By sharing our knowledge and teaching one another about the populations served by each community, outreach outcomes and service provision to those in need can be greatly enhanced. How can we do this? The panelists from MANY and Bridge Over Troubled Waters, discuss ways to close this gap and shares promising practices to enhance collaborations.
There is a woman in Florida who was sent to jail for not testifying against her attacked. Her attacker was her husband. She defied a court order when she didn't show up at his trial. Advocates say she was scared, and that it happens all the time that a victim doesn't face her abuser in court. They say most judges understand and don't revictimize the victim by punishing her. Some say a court order is a court order, and if witnesses don't appear in court, criminials get off. That's just the way it is. So who's right?
Jeanne Gold, attorney, journalist, women's advocate and CEO of SafeHouse in Florida joins Robert Rhodes, Seattle attorney and veteran of numerous trials and intimate partner violence cases, join us to discuss the issue of REVICTIMIZING THE VICTIM: WHEN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SUFFERRERS GET HIT AGAIN BY THE LAW.
On Firday @ 7:30 EST Join me and experts as we discuss DV at blogtalk.com/blogtalkusa or call in (347) 855-8118. Domestic Violence against women should be viewed as violence against the community. We should see men’s violence against women as not stemming from individual pathology, but rather from a socially reinforced sense of entitlement. Continuously viewing this problem from an individual standpoint will never heal a nation. We must cut at the roots of the problem and not at the branches! We must reexamine the methods and assumptions in which men and women are educated about preventing and stopping Domestic Violence.

It is estimated that one million Americans fail to report to work each day due to injuries sustained in family disputes. Over one million women are stalked each year in the U.S., and over a quarter of them report missing work as a result of stalking. A study also found that 74% of employed battered women were harrased by their partner while they were at work. A national survery revealed that 24 percent of women between the ages of 18 - 65 who had experienced DV said that the abuse caused them to arrive late at work or miss day(s) of work. These stats are alarming but there is H.O.P.E.! Join us for tonight's blog talk with our guest, Deborah, a human resource manager.
